Liberty Hall in Kenansville , North Carolina stands today as a proud reminder of a time that exists only in memories and storybooks. The ancestral home of the Kenan family built in the early 1800's, has been restored and is now a Southern Historic Landmark welcoming visitors from all over the world.
